    Members of the "Conseil de l'Entente" and their wives toured a new villa complex in Lome, Togo, last week (13 August) that was built to house representatives of the five-nation "Conseil."

    SYNOPSIS: A new villa complex has been built in Lome, Togo to house visiting members of the "Conseil de l'Entente." Representatives of Togo, Niger, Dahomey, Ivory Coast and Upper Volta will be guests here. But in the opening statement, heads of state were offered slight priority.

    Last week members of the Council and their wives went on a tour of the complex. It was built entirely at the expense of the co-operation fund of the "Conseil," and follows similar projects in Ougadougou, Niamey and Cotonou.

    The Togolese government is particularly proud that the villa complex was designed by Togolese architects, decorated by Togolese artists and built by Togolese workers. The plan for the villas was to combine traditional African art with modern designs.

    The villa and apartment complex has been presented as an indication of the steps forward the Togo Republic has made in the field of architecture.
